The Stupidest Injuries People Have Sustained

No injury is smart, but some are certainly dumber than others. Whether it came from a seemingly inconsequential source, a poor decision, or just plain hubris, most of us have sustained otherwise avoidable injuries that at least make for an okay story. Some are dumb and embarrassing freak injuries. Other injuries are just stupid.

While this video is clearly a throwback as is evident from the stunning video quality, it's also a haunting testament to the risky business that can be joining the crowd at a golf tournament. There's no backstop around to shield you from those errant golf shots, where things didn't go as planned. The fact that the shank occurs twice really makes you feel it for the crowd.

Things That Are Way More Dangerous Than People Realize

Life is full of hazards and not every single one has a creepy warning sign to go with it. Even something as simple as a slug or a toothache is enough to put a person in the ground, and while it's unlikely to happen, it's important to know what we're all getting into on a daily basis. Stuff is just surprisingly dangerous, man.

Patient Doesn't Realize MRI Technician Can Hear Them

All kinds of cringeworthy and unfortunate events seem to happen in the air-conditioned confines of the local doctor's office. Sometimes, that means a patient not realizing that they're actually mic'd up, and the MRI technician on duty can hear every last fart that they're letting loose. An unfortunate, yet humbling (?) experience for any human being to go through.

Dumb Ways People Got Scars

There's no reward without a little risk, but sometimes we take huge risks for to prospect of no actual reward. Understandably, there are a lot of stupid ways people injure themselves. Sometimes people get caught up doing a dumb thing, and other times it's total chance, like biting into a particularly sharp waffle. Come to think of it, there aren't a whole lot of smart ways people injure themselves.

But too often injuries come from jarringly mundane, stupid and dull tasks then you're only embarrassed to admit. People have some real dumb and embarrassing freak injuries.

Flying can be a stressful experience already, and problem flyers can cause some drama.

Sometimes power tripping bosses get what's coming, like this boss who didn't allow sick days, or this incompetent owner who fired a special contractor.

Guy Sleep Jumps Out Window, Lands In The Hospital

This guy decided to watch "American Horror Story" before going to sleep, and ended up waking up so frightened that he jumped out the window. Not only that, but he proceeded to provide proof in his Reddit recap. We hope he's off to a speedy recovery. Sounds like an absolutely terrible situation to find yourself in.
